That doesn't answer my question about how Peacock will release original programming.

I suspect it'll be weekly episodes, like DisneyPlus, rather than like Netflix.
The fact that streamers owned by major media conglomerates generally release their original programs one episode a week (in most cases) opens up a huge market.

That market being series being made for these streaming services, but produced as if they were going to be on a major broadcast network.

Such series could have up to 22-24 episodes per season, 20-22 minutes per episode for a "half-hour" series or 42-44 minutes for "hour-long" series, spots where ad breaks would go in (which would be needed if such a series gets enough episodes for syndication), and produced to the same content standards as network series.

Episodes would be released between late September and May with breaks in between like network series.

There are a lot of people who prefer network series because they don't have the extreme content that cable or streaming series tend to have (even series which such content is limited to strong language).

But the amount of network series is limited as it is because networks only have so much time available to program.

That's where Disney+, Hulu, HBOmax, Peacock, and All Access come in.

They could increase the amount of "network-styled" series available by commissioning such series for their streaming services.

I mainly care for the Dreamworks cartoons, "Trollstopia" & "Madagascar: A Little Wild". Yet there's no date for either of them or a trailer for the former, which I'm most excited for.

Well it's been explained on these forums these streamers NEED content. Even if they have to contract someone else's stuff. I guess that's just the way it's gonna be from now on.

One day the major media companies will decide they don't want to license ANY of their stuff to a competing streamer. When that happens, The Godfather will exclusively stream on All Access (for instance).

The major media companies would want to, collectively, force consumers to subscribe to all their streaming services, knowing that content owned by one company would be exclusive to the streamer owned by that company.

You know that doesn't surprise me that Peacock might not be available to Amazon or Roku users on it's launch date. I mean it's been going on almost two months since HBO MAX launched and they still aren't available on either platforms.

These Studios & networks are not saavy enough to think in terms of the cord-cutters. They are probably aware, but right now they want as many subs coming from cable to the streamers (i.e.not youths). For us that have been cut off, they're not exactly thinking of us. Though it would help.

With Peacock, Comcast is giving all the perks to those who have their cable service (also another company I forgot this second) kind of like how on Comcast Xfinity boxes you can access Hulu ,Netflix ,Prime video, Sling (Would like to have known how that meeting went ) , CBS All Access (knowing what CBS All Access if for, that makes sense) , I would guess they'd rather have people stay with Comcast and have Peacock as perk then maybe they'll figure out everyone else next. The other part is Roku and Amazon want a piece of the pie of the money from these services since (well more Roku's model, Amazon does have other money channels) are a one time purchase (for how long the thing lasts) and they want to make more revenue.

It's coming to PlayStation, next week.


Meanwhile, many NBC stations are un happy with Peacock getting promotion in a 30 Rock special so it won't air on a majority of stations
